We finally found our breakfast spot. Greasy, fast and authentic. The staff is all incredibly friendly and the whole experience was great. All the classic breakfast staples offered. Huge portions. Highly recommend this place for anyone looking for cheap eats in a true diner atmosphere. Sit at the counter to watch the chef and his assistant. It's very cool.

This place has been going down hill for many years and I think has finally reached the bottom. Food not even average. I now drive by and look for someplace else to eat

Took my girl there for breakfast before leaving the area. She was surprised by the size of the dish. Nice little place with and older looking exterior and interior.

Very nice older setting diner! The food is great. They give you a newspaper to read if you want and the customer service is awesome!

I found this place through Trip Advisor, we like to find places where locals go or just off the beaten path. I'm glad we decided to check it out. Nothing fancy but breakfast was great, so was our server. The home fries..don't know what they do to them, but they were the best I've had in a long time. Will... More

Huge! Save some for lunch! Old school diner with old school portions, friendliness, and stools! Go here if you want to impress your stomach and not some fancy clientele. Live the American dream...eat a diner this week! We'll back again the next time we are near Groton. Thanks

I regularly visit Norm's diner on my lunch hour. While you can't say it's particularly healthy the food is excellent. My favorite sandwich is the Philly and it is worth the trip all on its own.

Great food. (Hotdogs are my fave!) Reasonably priced. Friendly staff. Open late nights (some nights) --- which is perfect for us! (We're night owls.) Felt like home. If you're in the area, definitely stop in! Highly recommend.

I loved this Diner. I was in the service here in Groton, and I went to Norms every week. Felt like I was home. There was a southern belle from Georgia that worked there as a waitress and made me Grits. Love it. Very comforting here.

Thank Joel J
